I'm famous! (sort of!)

My friend talked about this jackalope postcard I sent her in a blog entry about the death of postcards (rumors of which have been greatly exaggerated).

Question: What's your favorite video game at the moment?

Answer: Umm, I'm not a pimply-faced, 15-year-old, masturbating loser, so I don't have one. Instead of violent video games, I like to watch my kids beat the shit out of each other. If I wanna play, I hit one of them.

- Julie Cafritz, of the band Pussy Galore

"Recount" Trailer

Laura Dern looks hilarious as Katherine Harris. I wish I had HBO and could watch her go.

Return-from-exams Media Bonanza!

Okay, not quite a bonanza (since there are strict guidelines for calling something that), but I've missed updating my blog a lot since exams started, so I'm gonna put together three things that have nothing to do with each other except that I've been looking forward to posting them.

This is the trailer to Reprise, a Norweigan film that I saw yesterday and can't stop thinking about. I'm impressed that the trailer is able to match the energy of Le Tigre's "Deceptacon," which plays over part of it. For a higher resolution version of the video, click here.

This is a picture of Tegan & Sara, who sing the acoustic version of "Nineteen" that iTunes recently put out (I'm kind of addicted to it).

Finally, here's a picture of my friend, whose blog I've been really enjoying (despite not having enough pictures for someone semi-literate like myself). She's standing in front of a fallen California redwood tree. I can't reveal her name because she prefers to post anonymously.
